Hmm, that's interesting. The shell scripts that you call to start Rabbit
will create new processes as necessary, and there will be a few. We're
doing nothing fancy to the parent process at all - the shell scripts
will exit and there should be a beam process running. This isn't
something we've come across so I'm afraid I've nothing concrete to
suggest. You could try starting rabbit directly with the rabbitmq-multi
script (which is really all the init.d script calls), but I'm not sure
whether that'll behave any differently - I certainly see no reason why
it should.
